bauma Open Innovation – New service for the sector

In time for bauma 2016 Messe München is launching a new service for the sector: the “bauma Open Innovation” online platform. bauma participants and other professionals interested in the sector can use this platform to solve their innovation-related challenges, by calling upon the expertise of Messe München’s entire cross-disciplinary network of contacts. The 31st edition of the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment takes place from April 11 to 17, 2016 at the Messe München exhibition center in Munich.


On this platform, companies can engage in applications or technology “scouting”. For example, companies can seek out new industries or fields of application for their existing products and services, and/or find appropriate technological solutions to meet specific challenges they are facing.


Seize the benefits

The bauma Open Innovation Platform is not the first of its kind at Messe München. A similar concept has already been implemented for the trade fair ISPO. The benefits of such an interdisciplinary “Open Innovation” method are obvious: Via the platform project organizers have virtual access to the combined expertise of over two million visitors and more than 30 000 exhibitor contacts. If a company harnesses their knowledge, wishes and requirements early on in its innovations development, then development times and costs can be lowered. In terms of application scouting in particular the interdisciplinarity of this crossindustry network can help to identify new fields of application for products and services.


bauma Open Innovation starts with pilot project

TEI Rock Drills, a US supplier of drills and attachments, has developed the “DrillAll”. This drill is unique in terms of its positioning capabilities and is particularly well suited to drilling in spaces where access is limited. TEI would now like to open up new applications for this drill, which was originally developed for the US military. It is therefore turning to the cross-industry bauma Open Innovation Community to benefit from their expertise and ideas.
